Are you talking about e mail.

If so were you using Outlook express. If so under 'Files' on the menu bar is the option 'Import' choose 'messages' and direct it to your saved messages.

what sort of messages do you nmean??

Checked the 'Import' route but you only seem able to import from another e-mail program not a CD-R. TR

You will have to copy the outlook express folder from the cd-r to the hard drive first. It wont import from cd-r
Also you have to have the messages in a folder called 'outlook express'. If any other folder name is used, it doesnt work.
In OE go to file/import/messages.
Click the bottom selection and browse to the folder with your messages in called outlook express. It will then ask if you want all or selected folders.

OOPS, nearly forgot, when it asks what messages they are, select OUTLOOK EXPRESS 6.
